The Village has initiated a preliminary engineering study to undertake a more detailed analysis of the transportation issues and identify potential solutions for the complex Rand Road/IL 83/Kensington Road intersection. This effort will build on the work already done as part of the recently completed Rand Road Corridor Plan. The study will also evaluate neighborhood cut-through traffic, access to the Randhurst Village, and other safety improvements in the vicinity of the major intersection. Public and stakeholder involvement will help to guide the process so that the solutions address actual needs and are consistent with the desires of the community.
Big thanks to everyone who joined us at the Public Open House on December 3rd. We enjoyed meeting with you and listening to your comments about this important – and challenging – intersection. Some key takeaways include issues related to congestion and wayfinding. We heard your ideas regarding opportunities for improved bike and pedestrian connectivity – as well as comments about improvements to the overall appearance of the intersection. The team will be gathering comments and working with the Village and stakeholders to develop preliminary concepts. Stay tuned!
